Thank You and Well Done to Claire Roberts of Edge Hill University :)

Claire Roberts, Administration Assistant at Edge Hill University Sporting Edge department took part in the Cheshire Super Sprint Duathlon to raise funds for Twinkle House. The event was held at South View Arena in Wettnhall, Cheshire on Sunday 6th November 2011.

The 1.25k run took place around the arena grounds, followed by a 10k bike ride out onto the country roads then to finish Claire embarked on a further 2.5k run again in the grounds of the arena.

Claire said “the event was very well organized, the course was great. There were 3 events on at the same time all completing different distances. I found the event on however my husband also races both Triathlon and Duathlon to which he represents Great Britain in this Age group. Having supported him for 7 years I felt it was time I had a go:0) I felt that completing this for charity would help give me that
extra motivation too. Anna Stockton has been my running partner and helped me prepare for the race day :0). Anna is also a supporter of Twinkle House as her son Joseph uses the service. Anna has also set up a Charity to raise funds for Joseph called Jogging for Joseph.

I would love for more people to get involved and help raise funds for Twinkle House too.

Twinkle House thanks Claire and all of those that have supported her incredible effort, very well done and we hope more people follow in her sporty footsteps. See Claire’s fundraising pictures on the Gallery soon…
